How can I display DBM entries in an HTML table?by bladx (Chaplain)

bladx has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hi ... it's been a while since I have frequented the monastery ^^; but I have finally had time to work on a new project. I am creating a simple news database program that saves to a DBM style database, and can add entries into it, using hashes. I am also using HTML::Template for the first real time to seperate the code from the HTML. My question is, how can I have this code snippet display all of the database entries in a table? Thanks for any help!
note:I have not added the file lock yet, but that will be added before I actually use this code in a bigger project later. I am sure that there is a lot of the program that could be much more efficient than it is, if so, please let me know, so I can learn and fix it! Thanks again.
Here is the first file, the actual code file (news.pl):
And here is the HTML Template file for the code (news.tmpl):
That should be all you need to check this program. By the way, this is not a homework question, this is a question that I would like to figure out how to do this sort of program correctly, because last summer I created a web framework news type of thing, but it sucked, and I am hoping this will be better overall than my last project. The old project's site page is at www.hashes.f2s.com ... but it is terrible ^_- so don't see it.
